I really like theoretical physics, but I wouldn't be happy just working on the theories and not getting my hands dirty physically applying the knowledge. That's why I thought an engineering minor would help.

But now that I think about it, I might actually prefer the application of physics as opposed to the "big ideas" of theoretical physics...so I'll probably get some field of Eng major and physics minor.

How practical/useful is a physics minor to an engineering major?

Which engineering field uses the most physics application? I know all of them do, but which one has the most? How does electrical Eng compare? Is it more computer related?
A physics degree and an engineering degree have a very similar beginning. My suggestion is to just pick one, and take some of the intro-level classes for each, and decide which you like from there. There's no rush.
